“Our Town”: An American Classic Re-Visited

Led by John F. Hudson


Thornton Wilder’s play “Our Town” is a considered by many to be the classic drama about human life: in a small town, in New England, in America. The 1938 Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama, it remains one of the most frequently performed plays in the world. Its themes of love and death, birth and tragedy speak to the human condition and what it means, in the words of one of its characters, “to realize life while [we] live it…every, every moment.”

 

Local pastor John F. Hudson has been a lifelong fan and student of the play, studied English at the University of Massachusetts, writes  “Spiritually Speaking” which appears in newspapers throughout greater Boston, and has been a scholar in residence at the Collegeville Writers’ Institute at Saint John University in Collegeville, Minnesota.

 

Participants are encouraged to read the play beforehand, come with questions and to attend the play in November as well.

 Copies of the play are available at the Sherborn Library.

The Smartypants Book Bashes are Back!


The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

Tuesday, November 18th, 7 p.m.


One on the world’s most famous ghost stories, The Turn of the Screw is considered by scholars to be James’ most puzzling and enigmatic work, sparking a literary controversy lasting decades---are the ghosts real or is the does the governess have “issues…”

James keeps the suspense screw turning by gradually removing the

cognitive linchpins of the reader’s reality.


Discussion led by Dr. William Flesch, Professor of Comparative Literature at Brandeis.
